With football and basketball in the midst of what seems like an offseason that lasts forever, the non-revenue sports at Ohio State are in or close to postseason play. Here is a rundown of the teams that are in action this weekend.


After dropping game one in East Lansing, the Buckeyes and the Spartans will battle at 1:05 today on BTN Plus. If you have a subscription, the game will be accesible for you to watch. The Buckeyes are currently 34-19 overall, and 14-9 in the Big Ten. After this weekend series, Ohio State will prepare for the Big Ten Tournament which begins on Wednesday in Omaha, Nebraska with a possible NCAA Tournament berth on the line.


Already in the middle of NCAA Tournament play, Ohio State won their first game in the Gainesville Regional by defeating USF 3-1 thanks to a Taylor Stephens three-run double. With the win, Ohio State improved to 35-14, although their record doesn't really matter now that they are already in the tournament.

The Buckeyes will face host-school Florida today at 2:30. The Gators, led by coach Tim Walton, are coming off a win against Bethune-Cookman to run their record to an incredible 51-8. The Gators are currently the #3 ranked team in the country.

Men's Tennis

After a 4-1 win over Minnesota yesterday—the third time the Buckeyes have bested the Gophers this season— the Ohio State men's tennis team will have today off as they gear up for a quarterfinal showdown against Mississippi State. 

This upcoming matchup is a top-ten battle. Mississippi State is currently ranked ninth in the polls, while Ohio State comes in in the third spot. You can follow the action here.

Women's Golf

In Stillwater, Oklahoma this weekend, Ohio State is battling for the women's golf championship title. Alas, they have not gotten off to the best start, as they sit in 19th place as we enter the second day of the tournament. 

As you can see in the tweet above, the girls will get back in action at 2:21 EST today. Here is a good interview recapping yesterday's action with head coach Therese Hession.
